Opposition parties may not support changes to Turkish Constitution
Azerbaijan, Baku, June 14 / Trend A. Tagiyeva /
According to the results of the parliamentary elections in Turkey, Erdogan's party will be able to change the constitution with the consent of opposition parties.
But they may oppose due to items associated with changing the form of power, Turkish Grand National Assembly MP Onur Oymen said.
"The opposition parties will oppose changing the form of power," he told Trend over phone from Ankara. "This can cause problems with changing the constitution."
He said that the opposition waits for drafting a new constitution.
After reading it, it will voice its final decision on the issue.
The changes in Turkey's constitution envisage amending the provisions on the term of the president's office, Ombudsman's activity and the complication of the ban on political parties.
Erdogan also proposes to add changes in the Turkish power to the list.
The AKP, headed by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, won the elections last Sunday as expected, gaining 50 percent of votes.
As a result, Erdogan's party will receive 326 seats in the new parliament. The party will be able to form a single-party government.
But it is not allowed to accept a draft new constitution in the Parliament and to hold a referendum on it, which was repeatedly stressed by the representatives of the ruling party.
